The enrollment period started in late July and ended in early September. Participants are required to take part in health screenings and follow-up by health counselors and “make a good-faith effort to take control over their own health and goals.” Employees will also be eligible for classes and focused health programming.

Chicago Lives Healthy is free to those who signed up. Nonparticipants will make an increased healthcare contribution of $50 a month. Mayor Rahm Emanuel cited the active support of labor unions and says the program “will result in much more enjoyable and healthy lives for tens of thousands of city workers and their families.”
